The way our class work helped me for this is that we know the background of him and also some of his books and how his writing style was and how he was as a kid.
One thing I learned from the riverboat captain is that the Mississippi River is used to transport a lot of grain and other stuff like that in large barges. I learned from the riverboat that they had a boy at the front of the ship who would drop a weighted rope down marked every 6 feet to make sure it was a safe depth which was 22 feet, and if it 22 feet or over the boy would yell Mark Twain and that is how he got the inspiration for his name.
One of the things I learned from the boyhood museum is that marks friend Tom Blankenship who was his inspiration for huckleberry fin is that he lived in a tiny two-room house that he had 7 siblings in and his two parents. Another thing I learned is that They had a slave boy and he sang a lot and when Mark Twain asked Aunt Polly to make him stop she didn't because he would never see his mother again and she felt sad for him.
One of the things I learned from Nathan our tour guide is that When they were exploring they used little different landmarks to get back to the entrance of the cave. Another thing Nathan thought us is that the first tour guided was an avid fisherman and whenever he wanted to go fish his tour could last 6 minutes and he would turn a corner and yell BEAR BEAR RUN!!!! and then go fishing but if he didn't feel like fishing or it was raining his tours could last 6 hours because he would get lost and the tour would end when he found the entrance.
My favorite part of the trip was also the most fun part of the trip it was fun because our tour guide was really funny and interesting and explained it very well and made lots of rock puns.
It was my favorite because I think its interesting how someone was hunting and they found it and how easy it is to get lost in caves and just how awesome it looked and the history behind it and how it was all made.
I wouldn't really change anything because I think it was really fun and I hope next years kids have as much fun as we did.
